Ingeniously simple from the 70s
No mainstream but a strong character from the 70s. A "Noble Hattric" I sometimes thought something was wrong. But the fragrance has much more depth, which you don't expect at the beginning. I always smell a fine and fresh soap that doesn't let up. The fragrance is very masculine and the shelf life is amazingly good. A fragrance for every season and every occasion but best applicable as a business fragrance.

Vintage Rules
G- Man, always an uncompromisingly masculine fragrance.
Since I can think it is the signature scent of one of my uncles, it was also the only scent he possessed and still possesses today.
It's funny that this fragrance of all fragrances has not been reformulated noticeably to this day and is stubbornly on the market. But it doesn't surprise me, because G-man simply has his qualities. Whether it's the black violet bottle with golden writing that lies good and valuable in the hand, or the fragrance itself, for a man it's a must have!

Immediately after spraying, an extremely soapy bouquet unfolds, which has to sort itself. Shortly afterwards the other scents come to light, especially the dominating rose geranium, which comes to the fore here, but never seems to be exaggerated. I would have suspected carnation here, wondering why none is listed, probably this aroma comes from the interaction of the ingredients...
In the further course of the fragrance the musk and the sandalwood get through well, the two then also form the foundation. Here G-Man doesn't change much any more, but he thinks he's a cologne for a surprisingly long time on the skin and the Sillage is not bad for hours either.
To me, G-Man is a statement. After showering and shaving you feel very well cared for and completely comfortable!

His fragrance twin Aigner No.2 can't quite keep up here, even if it's not bad, so I still see G-Man at the top.

Should this fragrance be discontinued, I will buy myself a lifelong stock : )

Variations in Chypre
Or: changeable Wanderchypre one could call "G Man".
All the scents circle around a central point: the rose geranium, fresh pink and a little minty. Like the planets around the sun. In the "initial stage" of the fragrance, lavender and clary sage form a "double system" that approaches the rose geranium and then slowly drifts away again without staggering "out of space".
With it incense gains some momentum without racing by really fast. It approaches leisurely and remains clearly perceptible at a proper distance.
Yeah, I almost forgot the aldehyde. They strengthen the scent build-up, make it stable and long-lasting without gaining the dominant upper hand.
The ingredients typical for Chypres also feel at home in their "sphere".
The moss with its green "orbit", the patchouli, which reminds of the "earthly", the sandalwood and the vetyver get involved in the "carousel game" and move wave-like around the centre.
Musk is as important to "G. Man" as the moon is to Earth. It maintains the stability of the system and causes
fresh animalic tides.
Birch tar sends greetings from the dark universe. The whole does not only have its own movements circling around a center, it moves as a whole away into unknown vastness and depth.
I can already guess one thing, no, I know where it's going: to Chyprien. Many have been there before, some don't want to leave anymore. From this dazzlingly colorful world. And G.Man is a station on this hike through the perfume universe.
